She Blew off our First Date Last Minute! Do I Give Her Another Chance?


In today’s video above Dear Sybersue discusses Mark’s question about a girl he met online who blew off their first date last minute without even giving him a reason!  (Yes, it happens to men too.) He wants to know if he should give her another chance and maybe set up another date.

Why is dating in the millennium so difficult and why is there so little respect for other people’s time?

The biggest problem with meeting someone online is you are not the only person they are communicating with. This leads to fickle behavior due to the other options available! You may be texting them regularly and then all of a sudden things come to a sudden halt between you both for no damn reason that you can see!

This becomes very difficult to deal with and takes a big toll on your self esteem!

Some men and women become addicted to “but what if there is someone better out there,” and keep their dating profile as active as a pin ball machine for fear of missing out on an even better conquest that just might meet there extreme checklist.

The trouble with all of this is, that people are lonelier than ever today because there are so many games being played; which sabotages anyone finding a real relationship!

Mark isn’t the only one confused on what to do when someone ghosts you on a date but if you always respect yourself first and pay attention to the early red flags in any dating situation, then you will bring yourself closer to eventually meeting the right person.

The more crap you allow in your life the more crap that seems to happen right?

When you stop giving the wrong people numerous chances to keep proving how wrong they are for you, then you have learned a valuable life lesson!

Don’t pine over someone who ghosted you. You really didn’t know them anyway. Thank “The Universe” that it saved you from having to deal with all the drama that would have certainly unfolded with this person.

You dodged a lot more than a little rejection from someone who obviously is void of human etiquette.

Sybersue gives her opinion on this question but what would you do? This affects both sexes on a regular basis and needs to change. Please watch the video above and leave your comments below!

      Hey Kelly, Yes, it's difficult because everyone meets online and seldom in person anymore. When you greet someone face to face it forces you to interact with eye contact, body language and actual verbal communication. It's harder to be fake. This isn't the case with apps and dating sites etc. It is soooo much easier to "hide things" behind a computer or smart phone.

          I don't know the statistics but I'll bet that will be an even higher number in the next few years.
